An Unpredictable Year and What it Means for 2021

I was reading back over my predictions for 2020 from last year’s Christmas/New Year blog. Boy was I wrong 😊 (see blog from last year here), but then again, I think most people could not have predicted all that has happened in 2020. 2020 has been the most difficult year to navigate in my professional career, but thankfully, it has not been all bad.

10 Reasons Why Dynamics Partners Choose 1ClickFactory's Self-Provisioning Platform to Host Dynamics NAV/Business Central in the Cloud

1ClickFactory’s self-provisioning is a hosting platform developed for Microsoft Dynamics Partners to deploy their Dynamics NAV and Dynamics Business Central customers on Microsoft Azure. Different Microsoft Dynamics Partners are choosing the platform for a number of reasons (customers solutions are too big or heavily customized and therefore not ready for Dynamics Business Central SaaS, localization is not available, etc.), but here are the primary reasons that 5 different Microsoft Dynamics Partners from  CEE countries used 1ClickFactory while deploying customers on Azure:

The shared responsibility of information security in 1ClickFactory’s self-provisioning for Dynamics NAV / Business Central service

In previous blog post, we introduced the information security management system (ISMS) for self-provisioning for Dynamics NAV/Dynamics 365 Business Central on Azure. We explored and explained 1ClickFactory’s path and approach to ensuring the security of the service and the safeguarding of customer data to our Dynamics Partners. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that the nature of cloud services means that the responsibility of information security is shared between all of the parties providing the service, as well as the end customer.

ISMS of Self-Provisioning Service is Now ISO 27001 Certified. What Does it Mean for Our Partners?

One of 1ClickFactory’s top priorities is to always ensure that the Self-Provisioning service is secure by design and that all the processes supporting the service adhere to strong information security controls. However, it wasn’t always easy to explain to different Dynamics Partners and clients how information security is ensured due to different understanding of available technologies and processes. 1ClickFactory decided to get an internationally recognizable information security management certification to help provide more assurance to Dynamics Partners and customers.

As a leading Microsoft Dynamics Cloud Software Factory, and one of the largest providers of Dynamics NAV/Dynamics 365 Business Central on Azure services globally, we often receive questions from Microsoft Partners about the configuration of Extension Development Environments.

Therefore, we’ve created a two-part blog series to share our best practices and to address the issues that Partners most commonly come across. In part one, we’ll be reviewing how to set up an Extension Development Environment using Visual Studio Code.

 

A Review of 2019 & Predictions For 2020 – From 1ClickFactory CEO

The Cloud Is Coming…Has Arrived

Most of you are familiar with the fable about the boy who cried wolf. For me, the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Cloud offerings have been a bit like that the past few years. 

A “Clean start” Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics Business Central SaaS

If you read our previous blog post on a Phased transition to Business Central SaaS (if you haven’t yet, you really should read it😊) you would have noticed that we refer to Dynamics 365 Business Central in the Cloud (Microsoft’s Software as a Service solution or ‘SaaS’ for short) as to the Eldorado, or destination of gold and eternal bliss. However, if your current version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is very outdated, you may wind up in a Sisyphean whereabouts, rather than Eldorado. In this blog post, I’ll share the best upgrade approach for very outdated Dynamics 365 Business Central solutions so that they can effectively move to the latest version. We call this upgrade concept a - “Clean Start”, aka clearing the path to Eldorado…

Lift and Shift to Dynamics Business Central SaaS – The Risk-Free Path to the Future

Today, Microsoft Dynamics NAV/365 Business Central On-Premises customers see Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) as the Eldorado (a destination of gold and eternal bliss). Therefore, the biggest consideration is discerning how to successfully move customers from Microsoft Dynamics NAV (any version) or Dynamics Business Central On-Premises to Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS smoothly, timely and safely.
